A dog died on a United Airlines flight Monday subsequent to being set in an overhead receptacle, the carrier affirmed to ABC News.

"I sat behind the family of three and thought myself lucky - who doesn't when they get to sit near a puppy?"

'They INSISTED that the puppy be locked up for three hours without any kind of airflow.

"They guaranteed the security of the family's pet so tediously, the mother concurred", traveler June Lara composed.

"The kennel must fit completely under the seat in front of the customer and remain there at all times", the policy reads.

The dog's death comes almost one year after United became embroiled in a public relations crisis due to a viral video that showed a passenger being forcibly dragged off of one of its flights. "There was some back and forth before finally the flight attendant convinced her to move the carrier to the bin above".

Upon landing, Lara said the dog was unresponsive.

The French bulldog was traveling Monday with its owner and her children from Houston to NY. The flight was almost 4 and half hours.

The incident took place on United Airlines Flight 1284 from Houston, Texas to New York's LaGuardia Airport.

United Airlines issued an apology to the passenger saying the dog should have never been placed in the bin and quote "we assume full responsibility for this tragedy". "We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again".
